How to incorporate ethnic fabrics into your home decor?
1. Traditional ethnic prints are so unique and detailed that they work as art when framed. You can use one large frame, but it would work just as well if you framed many coordinating patterns. This idea can be executed with wallpaper, too.
2. Use drapery and skirts. A quick way to bring the global trend into your home is with drapery or a skirted table. Blurred ikats are very nice. And drapery doesn’t have to be just for windows – even at an entrance to a room, it makes a grand statement.
3. Add pillows or an ottoman. Add punch to your neutral sofa by throwing on some ethnic-patterned pillows.
4. Upholster a headboard. Do you have plain white sheets and bedding? Bring a bit of color and the tribal look into your bedroom by upholstering your headboard and tying the new pattern in with a throw pillow. Play on zig-zag shapes with a clean cut chevron striped drapery.
